Hey MIAPLAYA PM me your contact info. Maybe we could get together while we are both there.
That's for sure. I've never had a car there but I have been in a few mags before. They are all long gone now along with most of the economy but I still have copies of my issues.

Back from SEMA finally. I'm posting pics tonight of the kit if Sam hasn't already. Car and kit look amazing. Final numbers won't be released for a bit as there is more tuning to do.

Updates the first post with pics from SEMA. Final tuning is still being done. The base tune (first test tune) was making ~530 WHP at 7 PSI but that is certainly not the final number. The car needs to have final tuning done.

Hey Will, I think you might be the right person to ask this question. In Corvette world (the world that I came from), anyone who wanted to do Turbo, would do a TT. Having two smaller turbo would yield to a quicker response and less lag, especially for DD. There were only a handful in C5 that did big single turbo mainly for drag racing.

Now, with the new Camaro, I see more and more "Single turbo v.s. TT (only one company does TT). My confusion is, we are still dealing with the same V8 LS3 in Corvette, so why a large single turbo with lag v.s. TT for Camaro? Is it because of cost cutting? As someone in Turbo solution, wouldn't you agree a TT would be better and more responsive in low RPM?

Thank you in advance!

Since the Camaro is such a new car, not very many people are wanting to do extreme builds. It seems to be the same issue on the shop side of things, too. The problem is, the stock LS3 block can only handle so much power. That's why you're seeing "small" single turbos instead of twin builds. Nobody wants to spend "that much" money on a Camaro. Not yet, at least.

If the single turbo kit is built properly, there are no lag or spooling issues on this small of a horsepower scale.

We would definitely love to do a twin turbo 2010 Camaro. We just have to find an owner crazy enough to pull the trigger.

Well another reason for doing a single turbo is to make it 50 state legal. While a lot of people don't typically care about that those of us in California don't have a choice. Making a kit 50 state legal gives everyone peace of mind when they get pulled over or have to smog the car every couple years.

You'll have to contact Turbonetics directly or a vendor for pricing. I'm not a vendor so I don't have any of those details sorry.

Videos coming in the next week or so. Turbonetics was working on the final tuning of the car after SEMA and they are closed this week. Probably another week or so.

This is the cleanest setup I've seen. What's the size of that turbo and any dyno graph to show TQ curve?

The turbo for the base kit will be a 61mm compressor. I don't have a dyno sheet yet. The car was back on the dyno for more tuning after SEMA and Turbonetics is closed this week so I should have more info on everything next week when everyone is back.

Turbonetics doesn't do installations at their facility. That number is probably not the final price either but I don't know for sure. The kit does come with a tune included so there shouldn't be any need to tune the car after. The kit does also include a 12 month / 12,000 mile warranty no fault no hassle. I personally know a G35 guy who had a Turbonetics kit on his car and got into a wreck. His intercooler and a bunch of his piping got mangled and Turbonetics replaced all of it for free without question.

If they have a TT kit that's CARB-legal, that'll be the sh*t! The way they put that kit together is amazing! If something like this makes it into California legally, I'm going to have to rethink my strategy

WOW!!! Please keep us posted

Thanks for the info. Do you know or can you find out if this turbo comes with ball bearing? if not, would that be an option? Secondly, will this kit, connect to a long or short tube headers, replacing stock CATS with High flow CATS?

I'm pretty sure you can upgrade to the ball bearing, which is the way to go. For more money, of course!!

Hey Gotpball, I remember TechCo started using your car for R&D, now I see Turbonetics is working on it. I hope this time you have better luck

Can you verify with Turbonetics if Meth kit can be added since the MAF sensor is so close to the engine?
Thanks!

The performance numbers would be less but in terms of reliability wouldnt it fair quite a bit better?
I recently asked the same question. I hope to get an official answer from Turbonetics. It's odd that I have not seen anyone from Turbonetics answering questions.
